Gun sales spike as California's tougher 2017 laws loom Login/Join

Excerpted from the article. Colorado already has the magazine limitation. I can only hope things don't get worse.

New laws for 2017:

•Limit whom gun owners can lend their weapons to; allowing only for lending to family members.

•Create new criminal punishments for falsely reporting a gun lost or stolen. Lawmakers said the law is needed to fight gun traffickers who claim guns are lost or stolen when a weapon is linked to them.

•Require gun owners, starting in July, to report a gun lost or stolen to law enforcement within five days of realizing the weapon is missing.

•Make it illegal to possess a large-capacity magazine beginning in July. Previously, only buying or selling large-capacity magazines was illegal. The new law will make it illegal to possess magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Anyone who owns a large-capacity magazine will be required to destroy it, surrender it to law enforcement or take it out of the state.

•Require law enforcement officers to lock their firearms in a box in the trunk when exiting their vehicles.

Many aspects of new gun-control laws and the voter-approved Proposition 63, also known as Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s “Safety for All” ballot initiative, will go into effect in 2018 and 2019.

Beginning in 2018, for example, ammunition dealers who sell more than 500 rounds a month will be required to apply for a license from the state. Also, people who want to purchase ammunition will have to undergo a background check beginning in 2019.

Also in 2018, the state will update a law that requires people who are barred from owning guns, due to serious or violent offense convictions, to provide the court proof that they got rid of their weapon.

Probably the most beautiful and diverse scenic state in the country. Silly, virtually impossible to enforce "make me feel safer" anti gun laws. Gangs will love it. Really love the one about LE locking their guns up when exiting their vehicles. Would like to see the actual wording of that statute.

Between the minimum wage, sanctuary cities, rampant dope, high taxes, etc CA is shooting itself in the foot with residents and businesses moving out of state. What will the tax rate be then?

It appears as if this is an Ex Post Facto law and may be unenforceable.

TTAG - California DOJ Withdraws “Emergency” Magazine Ban Proposal

Just a little over two weeks ago the California Department of Justice dropped a bomb on the citizens of their own state. The DOJ suggested a new regulation which would require all gun owners to dispose of their standard capacity (10+ round) magazines prior to July 1, 2017. Students of Constitutional law might recognize this as an illegal seizure of private property without compensation from the state, something specifically forbidden by the U.S. Constitution. CA DOJ officials apparently didn’t think that the minor wrinkle applied to evil gun owners and their deplorable fetish objects. News comes tonight that the California DOJ has just withdrawn their proposal as abruptly as it was introduced.

From the FPC:

Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) has confirmed that the California Department of Justice (DOJ) has withdrawn their proposed “emergency” regulations on large-capacity magazines.

A December 29, 2016 Office of Administrative Law (OAL) memo, sent to Attorney General Kamala Harris today, states that “This notice confirms that your proposed regulatory action regarding Large-Capacity Magazines was withdrawn from OAL review pursuant to Government Code section 11349.3(c).”


This is good news for residents of California. For now, at least. There’s little doubt that what California lawmakers want most is to make gun ownership as onerous and complicated as possible in order to discourage and eventually eradicate the practice from their hallowed shores. To that end I would expect this issue to pop up again sometime in the near future, but hopefully there will be a Republican stacked Supreme Court ready to set these left coasters to rights.
